The Bendigo Bank Coffs Harbour Running Festival is a community event for people of all ages and abilities and consists of a 21.1 km Half Marathon, 10 km Fun Run, 5 km Fun Run and a 3km Family Fun Run/Walk.
Held on a bush trail on the Coffs Creek walkway, the flat, shady course is ideal for runners. The picturesque track hugs the beautiful Coffs Creek and competitors run over floating boardwalks, through swamp forests of mangrove, casuarina and paperbark trees from the centre of town to the coast and back.
The event raises funds for local children’s charities including Life Education Australia, Coffs Coast Autism, Camp Quality and the Early Connections Coffs Harbour.
The Doctor on Duty Schools Challenge was introduced to the event in 2016 proving to be a huge success. It encourages school students to take part in something active in their local community. The winning schools, based on percentage of participants receive vouchers to spend on sporting equipment.
